When fiction overcomes reality. Meeting with the photographer Cristina de Middel

15/01/2018 - 18:00 a 19:30 - IED Photography

  • Place : IED Master
  • Address : Calle Larra 14 28004 Madrid

If you are a fan of photography, specifically documentary photography, you must come to the meeting with Cristina de Middel, the winner of the Premio Nacional de Fotografía 2017. Here work has expanded the limits of photography, positioning itself in the limits between reality and fiction.

This photographer, who hails from Alicante, is nationally and internationally known for her revision of the limits of the language of documentary photographer and for the innovative nature of her work. By combining documentary and conceptual practices, she plays with reconstructions and archetypes that blur the separation between reality and fiction.

Do you want to know more? New Monday, the 15th of January (18.00h), Cristina de Middel will be at the Aula Magna of IED Master (Calle Larra 14) to describe her innovative vision of documentary photography and her way of questioning, challenging and photographing the truth about the world (the lecture will be in English). And that’s not all … Ricardo Cases -Director of the Master of Professional Photography- presents his book Sol at 19.30h. at La Fábrica, do you come?

Don’t miss it!
